organizations, the reporters questioning of jay carney, to have branched out considerably larger than one network. what is being called into questioned here is how truthful the administration was at the time when it had been saying that it was not doctoring or urging anyone in any part of the administration to say anything that wasn't the truth. but now it would appear from this abc study that looked at e-mails back and forth between the various agencies, that there might have been an effort to scrub clean warnings of an imminent militant threat in that country and beyond that country. james rosen at the state department with the implications from all of the above. james? >> neil, good afternoon. i was watching the portions top the white house daily press briefing conducted by press secretary jay carney. it was interesting to see carney struggle at times to explain some of his past statements about benghazi. in september of 2012, he said that in all of the initial evidence that the obama administration had, there was, quote, no evidence that the this was preplanned attack. the publication
. >> at the white house reporters bomb board barded jay carney with questions about the inner agency process that scrubbed of multiple riwlgsz to al-qaeda, terrorism and islamic extremists. that called into question his insist tins that he had only one small change. >> and assigning responsibility and preliminary assessments suggested and it was concern about preserving the integrity. >> reporter: may 20 issue of cites an email that general petraeus sent four days after the attacks in which petraeus is said to have expressed frustration at obama administration's revolve from references from the al-qaeda that the c.i.a. prepared the day before. >> i respect that the people who spoke up in the course of these hearings. you know, they were there. they felt the horror of that terrorist attack. and obviously it's emotional, but i hate to see it turned into a pure prolonged, political process that really doesn't tell us anything new about the facts. >> reporter: separately, abc news jonathan carl reports having obtained 12 versions of the benghazi talking points. according to that report, an early
scandal but i don't remember being under the gun like jay carney was today. they would like to think this briefing will solve everything and everyone there will continue to move on and pretend that benghazi never happened. however, i do think that the hearing the coverage, the additional information built on the steven hayes report from the weekly standard that we talked about last friday, built upon by jonathan carl of abc news who found that there were 12 iterations. two main things i think what remain to be answered but there are others, first is, what of the things that the white house says they did not want to speculate early on. except that they speculated and blamed the youtube video when it didn't have anything to do with the youtube video and it didn't have anything to do with it. second thing, if the white house had just stylistic changes to the talking points, it is puzzling to me there would be 12 iterations. plus, why would the c.i.a. revise its own talking points it had sent over before which completely changed the facts to the original talking points they had sent on t
not want to be today, it was white house spokesman jay carney. press grilling him over charges that the white house altered the initial cia reporting of the benghazi terror attack to down play the organized terrorism angle. playing up the spontaneous anti-american demonstration angle. carney denied any and all wrongdoing by the white house. >> on the substantive issues of what happened in benghazi and at that time what the intelligence community thought it knew, that was reflected in the talking points that were used again that weekend by ambassador rice and by others and members of congress. now when asked if the white house would release the email correspondents between it and the cia, carney said no. >> internal deliberations are generally protected. it's generally protected information that is not something that is regularly shared with congress. >> now, mr. carney gave long rambling answers to the questions. the white house did nothing wrong and susan rice did nothing wrong and the generated by republicans for political reasons. that's his story and as they say he is stick
after benghazi so obama could get reelected. at the white house press briefing jay carney was asked whether or not political calculations were made during the talking points review process. watch this. >> the language that is e-mail is pretty clear. seems clear that there was an influence by the white house and the state department on the cia talking points. >> but again i think you are forgetting a couple of things here. the whose as i said made maid one minor change to the talking points drafted by and produced by the cia. >> concern was concern about how congress would react a factor in the talks? >> if you look at the development of the talking points, the answer to that is no. >> jay, you told us that the only changes that were made were stylistic. is it a stylistic change to take out all references to previous terror threats in benghazi? >> i appreciate the question again and what i was referring to was the talking points that the cia drafted and sent around to which one change was made. i accept that stylistic may not precisely describe the change of one word to the other. >>
secretary jay carney took some serious heat this week -- a lot of people did on the issue, from white house reporters. this was on friday. >> eric: absolutely. but now a growing number of lawmakers are calling on house speaker john boehner to create a select committee to investigate the benghazi attack. steve centanni is live in washington with the latest on that. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, eric. plenty of friction on the sunday talk shows, on the revelation of emails that show revisions in the controversial talking points about what happened. republicans claim a coverup as the obama administration labored to make the attack look like the aftermath of a spontaneous demonstration and not a preplanned terrorist attack. four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya, of course, killed in that attack. darrell issa who has led the charge in the administration's handling of the affair. says that many questions remain unanswered. >> was the response correct? could it have been better? why weren't things tried or revved up to be tryd? and then afterwards, how could you
presidential press secretary jay carney insisted the white house role had been small. >> the only edit made by the white house or the state department to those talking points generated by the c.i.a. was a change from referring to the facility that was attacked in benghazi from consulate because it was not a consulate to diplomatic post. >> john: but arizona senator john mccain wouldn't buy it. >> for the president's smoke man to say that, well, there was only words or technical changes made in those e-mails is a flat-out untruth. i'd call it a cover-up. i would call it a coverup in the extent that there was willful removal of information which was obvious. >> john: for more, i'm very honored to welcome back to "viewpoint" thomas pickering ambassador what a pleasure it is to have you on the show. >> thank you john, it is nice to be back with you. >> thank you, and we enjoyed watching you with chairman issa. you corrected him on air letting us know that the republican majority said you weren't welcome at last week's hearing. have you been in contact with the chairman's oversight reform yester

much for benghazi happened a long time ago. jay carney postponed his regular scheduled briefings three hours as he held a discussion with the press corps trying to spin the attack in libya. two days ago we heard explosive testimony from three state department whistleblowers and today jonathan carl obtained 12 different edits to talking points that were the basis for the administration's leading message after four americans were killed by muslim terrorists. what were the edits about? hardly about scrubbing the facts that al-qaeda group was responsible. perhaps it was to protect president obama. carney and the white house have reason to sweat. here is carney's original explanation about edits. >> the white house has made it clear that the single adjustment to those talking points by either of these two institutions was changing the word to conflict because conflict was inaccurate. >> kimberly: here is what he said today. >> the white house as i said made one minor change to the talking points drafted and produced by the c.i.a. even prior to that had very few input on it. the other discus

delayed for several hours with spokesman jay carney taking heated questions on those benghazi talking points. that after reports that in edits from the state department, references to al qaeda warnings were taken out. questions about just how much the white house was involved in those edits and what was the motivation have been the subject of much scrutiny coming largely from republican quarters. and we just heard our own white house correspondent kristen welker asking jay carney, white house press spokesman, questions. we'll get to her later. >>> let's go straight to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst, and soon to be msnbc host, karen finney. in philadelphia, lehigh university professor, james peterson. karen, what is your reaction to this revelation that there were 12 versions which contained what have been described by members of the press as extensive changes to the talking points? >> i find it absolutely absurd and an obscene waste of time. i have to tell you, martin, having been a part of this kind of process where, i mean, and literally, i think as some

carney clearly playing defense on the talking points. >> jay, you told us that the only changes that were made by stylistic. is it a stylistic change to take out all references to previous terror threats in benghazi? >> well, i appreciate the question, again, and i think that what i was referring to was the talking points that the cia drafted and sent around to which one change was made. and i accept that stylistic may not precisely describe the change of one word to another. >> this was not a change of one word to another. these underwent extensive changes after they were written by the c aria. >> there was an interagency process which is always the case. a lot . >> that was jonathan carl asking that question. he's one who broke this story for abc. danielle, let me begin with you. when you look at the editing of the talking points, is this the way it looks when you're watching sausage being made, or is this evidence of some form of cover-up. >> well, i think it's a little bit of both, honestly. clearly, in any executive branch discussion, you're going to have different agencies fighting
, kelly. a tough day for jay carney. for the first time since the benghazi attack happened, the white house press corp, not just fox, ganged up on carney who is struggling to find answers to yesterday's abc news report that 12 revisions were made in the benghazi talking points. first issued by the cia. the first draft said, and we quote, we do know they participated in the attack. the final draft after the 12 revisions which susan rice delivered on the five talk shows made no mention of al-qaeda. her remarks attributing it to an anti-islam film was not true given what the cia knew. shear one of carney's attempts to explain that. >> we knew that -- we believed based on the intelligence assessment ks stream mists were involved, and there was suspicions about what affiliation the extreme mythses might have of the there was not hard, concrete evidence. >> one of the people now at the center of the controversy is victoria in newland, the spokeswoman. in e-mails obtained by the weekly standard and abc she objects to the wording of repeated cia warnings about the deteriorating situation in b
't have kings. >> jay carney says if the targeting did take place the president would want to the matter to, quote, thoroughly investigated. >> gregg: all right. molly, thanks very much. amid growing calls for a government wide investigation into the irs, maybe some resignations, we're going to talk a little bit later on whether a special prosecutor is actually needed to get to the bottom of what happened and whether any federal crimes were committed. don't go away. >> heather: there are new developments in the benghazi scandal. the white house is launching a new defend of the government's official assessments of the deadly terror attack. according to reports, newly leaked email excerpts show a string of changes to talking points that apparently scrubbed references to al-qaeda. doug mckelway has the latest from washington. >> reporter: really tough day for jay day any yesterday. for the first time since the benghazi attack happened. white house press corps and not just fox ganged up on him. that 12 revisions were made in the benghazi talking points, first issued by the c.i.a. the first d
. what changed over the course of those 12 edits in all of those email exchanges? >> exactly. jay carney today said only one thing turned out to be wrong. what he didn't say is what was left out. what changed between the initial version and the final version were a lot of details that were excised. the mention of al qaeda. the mention of ansar al-sharia an african based affiliate. the words were toned down. words violent demonstration instead of attack. and any mention of the c.i.a. having previously warned of -- of previous attacks that suggested that somebody should have known better about security. >> and did -- jay carney in that rather contentious white house briefing today explain why there were these changes or in some cases those omissions? >> what carney said is they wanted to make sure they only put out the information they knew to be true and didn't want to be speculative and put out information that would turn out to be wrong after more investigation. what he didn't really explain, though, is why he said or originally that the white house and state department actually only as
and it was just one of those days that everything went wrong? >> look at jay carney's performance. he explained away the talking points and terrorism and ansar al-sharia and it was cloerl an attack on the ambassador and how that got changed and he tried to explain it away. there is clearly a cover up and a fiction being written and i think the press is catching on to it. >> tell me what probably happens in the state department and the people who work there when they see people above them running for cover and saying if there was any blame it was the folks in the lower levels, does that lesson the confidence of people in the state department and make them think i am on my own down here? >> and if you lock at mr. hicks. they are not hostile to the obama administration. the foreign service and diplomat that exists in the state department are democratic and left loning. they would not be -- they feel they are tloun under the buzz. what can we expect to so unfold in the next few months and years. it could be a while before the layers of the onion come forth. we'll be right back.

? >> reporter: well, i think we can assume that the hearing that jay carney is about to hold that has been delayed for a few minutes now will be dominated by questions of benghazi. part of the issue here and one of the things that reporters will want to know about, probably the first thing is repeatedly here. the white house has said jay carney and others have said the only thing that was changed by the white house in this series of communications over the course of events in benghazi and that fateful day, that sunday when susan rice, the u.n. ambassador went on all five networks sunday talk shows and represented what happened in benghazi as the outgrowth of a responsibility demonstration, a reaction to that provocative youtube video which had in fact spawned demonstrations earlier in the week in cairo. what happened was a result of that. jay carney had said the only thing that the white house has changed were semantic words. he said repeatedly that the word embassy to describe it was changed to consulate. in fact it was not a consulate. that was the extent of the white house involvement i
they previously denied. in fact, today jay carney doubled down saying the white house made only one edit, changing the word consulate to the word diplomatic post. the thing is there were 12 rounds of edits. among the first thing taken out of the draft is islamic extremists with ties with al qaeda participated in the attack. jim acosta who you just stlau was in the room asking questions and he's "outfront" tonight. that was an intense press briefing. we don't usually see them like that. >> that's right, erin. and i think that's because of what the white house said back in november when jay carney went to the white house press briefing and told reporters that only a single adjustment had been made and then when you go through the e-mails, you discover very quickly, erin, that several adjustments were made and that they were not stylistic as the white house said repeatedly. they were content based. they had to do with victoria newlyn indicated in one e-mail that there was a concern about even mentioning this group that was linked to al qaeda because that might lead members of congress to beat the sta
memo in front of susan rice, back in november, white house press secretary jay carney said it was the intelligence community that prepared these talking points and the white house denied any involvement. they said neither the state department nor the white house was involved in this beyond changing one word. listen to this. >> what the house and state department have made clear that the single adjustment that was made to those talking points by either of those -- these two institutions were changing the word consulate to diplomatic facility because consulate was inaccurate. those talking points originated from the intelligence community. they reflected the ic's best assessments of what they thought had happened. >> megyn: that's just not true. i mean, abc, steve hayes, they have the memos. and the extinns tensive correspondence between the state department, representatives of the white house, meetings at the white house, on the talking points and how they should be changed. believe me, it was over more than just one word. we will show you that. james rosen sold you some. we
, kate, that white house spokesman jay carney brought up, the person who was running the irs was a bush administration appointee. another interesting tid bit there. >> another interesting tid bit but be sure the white house will likely try to be distancing themselves from this especially amid all of the other issues swirling today. you can be sure as well that republicans on capitol hill will be investigating as they do. thanks so much. >>> still ahead i'll be talking to republican senator lindsay graham about just this, what he thinks of the irs action and scrutinizing tea party groups and also talking about much, much more news of the day. also, a cnn exclusive. you'll hear the daughter of the alleged cleveland kidnapper say he is now dead to her as she vows to cut off all contact with him, her father. >> awesome neighbors. thank you. we're not in london, are we? no. why? apparently my debit card is. what? i know. don't worry, we have cancelled your old card. great. thank you. in addition to us monitoring your accounts for unusual activity, you could also set up free account alerts. o
in washington in some time. of course, jay carney's press conference was one of the most unbelievable presidential press conferences i had seen in 15 years maybe. and then i was out with jack getting him some legos. my alarm goes off. it's the a.p. reporting that they had targeted on friday, of course, that the irs had targeted these conservative groups. a lot of stuff going on with this white house. >> there's big unanswered questions in both cases. if you look -- if you take a breath and say what is speculation and what is fact in both of those stories, there are still a lot of unanswered questions and republicans as a political and substantive matter, i think, are going to have to do a better job than they have in the past if they are going to serve the public interest and help to get to the unanswer the questions as opposed the breathless hysteria to things that aren't real. >> to get to the truth because a lot of things are real here. let's get to the facts. >> the irs we start with which is under fire accused of targeting conservative nonprofit groups for additional scrutiny for
politics. this is bad. very bad. jay carney tried his best to sort of to put the best face on it. plus the boston bammer, tamerlan tsaernaev has been buried. an inter faith area from the area of richmond virginia, a couple of places provided a burial plot for him. the town is not happy about it. it's boswell virginia. they are not happy. we will talk about whether or not he actually deserves a burial plot or not and whether you would have him in your town. we brought in lots of great guests to talk about it u.s.a. today's david jackson and report friars roll call. coming up today on the "full-court press" right here on current tv.

: that was white house press secretary jay carney moments ago, reacting to reports from the united nations suggesting that the syrian rebels are to blame for the recent use of chemical weapons. this as tensions escalate between the defiant regime and one of our best middle eastern allies, israel, after they reportedly launched a missile over syria, targeting weapons believed to be headed toward hezbollah. one syrian official calls the strike a declaration of war. what does that mean? or is that bluster? ralph peters joins us at the top of the hour today to discuss about what's happening here and what we're to make of the latest white house pronouncement that they believe it was the regime that used these chemical weapons. that's the red line, folks. that's it. >>> back to one of our top stories o'clock the widow of tamerlan tsarnaev had terror training materials on her personal computer. mark furman, former lapd homicide detective with me now. we don't know she's the one who posted them or reviewed them. but we are being told that it was on her computer and on top of that, mark, we have no

mouth piece, jay carney, saying the same thing. and this is a president who spent $80,000 on ads in pakistan apologizing on behalf of the united states for that video. so if it was terrorism then that's a confusing thing and a waste of money. also, eric, he was misleading about two other things. one he said the congressional committee found no wrong doing. that's not true. those congressional committees found there was improper drafting and handling of the talking point. he is saying the opposite of the truth. he says there was that review board with pickerring and mull lynn. he said they investigated it, it is over, no big deal, but they were on the sunday shows. it was narrow in scope and it didn't focus on the talking points, only the security. and it didn't interview hillary clinton. >> no other person on the ground had the most information and the eyewitness accounts, they don't even ask them that. i think that administrative review board thing is going to be set aside as inoperable. >> flawless. it is filled with flaw. >> at one point president obama said there is no there
